Proclamation 

Whereas, January 6th, 1946, will mark the an- 
niversary of the death of Haym Salomon, in 
Philadelphia 161 years ago; and 

Whereas, The devotion of Haym Salomon _ to 
our country symbolizes the patriotism and spirit 
of sacrifice of the men and women of diverse faiths 
and national origins who have contributed to the 
foundation of our Republic; and 

Whereas, Haym Salomon was one of the great 
patriots of the American Revolution, who risked 
his life and gave his fortune in the great cause of 
American liberty; and 

Whereas, The record of Haym Salomon's serv- 
ices has been memorialized for posterity by the 
George Washington-Robert Morris-Haym SaWmon 
monument, which was erected by the Patriotic 
Foundation of Chicago and unveiled on the 150th 
Anniversary of the Bill of Rights on December 15, 
1941, just eight days after the infamous attack on 
Pearl Harbor; and 

Whereas, After four years of a bloody global 
war, in which once again Americans of all faiths 
and national origins fought side by side and won 
a glorious victory, which can be converted into a 
lasting peace only by the utmost understanding 
and tolerance among peoples of all faiths and na- 
tional origins; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim that the 
161st Anniversary of the death of Haym Salomon, 
Sunday, January 6th, 1946, be observed as Haym 
Salomon Day, and that the day be devoted to the 
retelling of the contribution of our Founding Fath- 
ers to the building of America, emphasizing that 
the tolerance employed by them, who constituted 
people of all faiths and national origins, should 
serve as a reminder to us today in implementing

Proposed Request to Governor of Illinois to Call 

Special Session of Legislature to Remove Tax 

Burden from Real Estate in Chicago; Etc. 

On motion of Alderman Keenan the City Council 
thereupon took up for consideration the report of the 
Committee on Consolidation, Reorganization and Tax- 
ation on a proposed resolution to request the Gov- 
ernor of Illinois to call a special session of the legis- 
lature to relieve the tax burden on real estate, etc., 
deferred and published December 28, 1945, page 4672.^ 
Alderman Keenan moved to concur in said commit- 
tee report and adopt said proposed resolution. 

By unanimous consent Alderman Waller thereupon 
presented the following proposed substitute resolu- 
tion, consideration of which was deferred: 

Whereas, The present and propective general 
property tax rate in Chicago constitutes an unjust 
and oppressive burden on industry and home own- 
ers and is a big factor in the blighting of our City 
and retarding its development; and 

Whereas, It is common knowledge that Chicago 
gets a very low return in service for the tax money 
spent, and that such conditions as the current con- 
dition of our streets and alleys are further blight- 
ing values and thereby creating a vicious circle of 
declining values and higher taxes ; and 

Whereas, Surveys and general opinion point to 
duplicating, inefficiently organized and wasteful 
public service in individual and separate local gov- 
ernment agencies; and 

Whereas, The State Legislature has the responsi- 
bility of determining the organization of local 
governments, the amounts they shall be permitted 
to spend and the sources of their revenue; now 
therefore 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council do hereby 
request the Governor to recommend to the general 
assembly the creation of a committee to investigate 
the solution to this pressing problem and to deter- 
mine the most efficient organization of local gov- 
ernment in Cook County and the most equitable 
sources of revenue for its support. 

After debate Alderman Kells moved that further 
consideration of the committee report be deferred. 
The motion to defer prevailed. 



Proposed Requirement for Nighttime Illumination of 
Stairways, Vestibules, Etc., in Multiple Dwellings. 

On motion of Alderman Cullerton the City Council 
thereupon took up for consideration the report of 
the Committee on Buildings and Zoning on a pro-

taining more than two flats or apartments, deferred

and the Comptroller and the heads of other departments, bureaus and offices

JOURNAI^— CITY COUNCII^CHICAGO January 9, 1946 



Section 6. The appropriations herein made for salaries and wages shall be 
regarded as the maximum appropriations for the respective positions, the num- 
ber of positions specified and the length of time for which the incumbent of 
each position is to be employed. The wages herein fixed on a per diem basis 
for skilled labor are subject to change during the fiscal year as the city 
council may determine when the prevailing wage rates for such labor in 
private employment are changed. However, all increases in the per diem 
rate for skilled labor authorized by the city council are subject to the amount 
available therefor by appropriation herein for adjustments in such wage rates. 
Where an appropriation for any position with special assignment is in ex- 
cess of the salary or wage to which the incumbent of such position is en- 
titled by grade, rank and seniority, the department head shall certify to 
the Civil Service Commission the nature of the special assignment and if 
the Civil Service Commission determines, by its approval of the pay roll, 
that such special assignment is immediately required without reclassification 
of the position the amount appropriated shall be paid to the incumbent per- 
forming the duties of the position with special assignment; otherwise the 
salary or wages of such incumbent shall be the amount established for po- 
sitions of the same class and grade, or rank according to seniority of service, 
without special assignment, and no additional compensation shall be paid to the 
incumbent of such postion by voucher or otherwise. Upon termination of the 
special assignment payment of the extra or additional amount appropriated for 
such position shall be discontinued. No employe shall have the right to demand 
continuous employment and compensation by reason of the appropriation if it 
becomes necessary to lay him off on account of lack of work or lack of funds. 
In case of any vacancy in any office or position herein appropriated for, the 
head of the department in which any such vacancy occurs shall not be required 
to fill such office or position if in his judgment and discretion there is no neces- 
sity therefor.

Note: The estimates and appropriations in the appropriation ordinance are made in accordance 
with Section 22-1 of the Revised Cities and Villages Act which includes the provision that "Estimates 
of taxes to he received from the levies of prior years shall he net, after deducting the amounts esti- 
mated to he sufficient to cover the loss and cost of collecting these taxes. These amounts shall include 
(1) uncollectible taxes, (2) the cost of collecting taxes, (S) the amount of these taxes for the nonpayment 
of which real estate has heen or will he forfeited to the State, and (U) the abatement in the amount of 
these taxes extended or to be extended upon the collectors' hooks. In order to secure net estimates there

Office of the City Comptroller 

January 15, 1946. 

The Honorable City Council, City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I am transmitting herewith revised 
Estimated Balance Sheet of the Corporate Pur- 
poses Fund, showing the estimated Resources and 
Liabilities as of January 1, 1946. 

Since submitting to your Honorable Body on 
December 1, 1945, the estimated Resources and 
Liabilities 'of the Corporate Purposes Fund, and 
the Assets Available for appropriation for 1946, 
the City Council has modified certain licensing or- 
dinances which affect the estimate of Miscellaneous 
Revenue. 

In addition, we have received remittances from 
the County Treasurer on account of taxes of prior 
years which affect the estimates of net taxes re- 
ceivable for those years as submitted. 

The Supreme Court reaffirmed a previous de- 
cision that the loan from Undistributed Taxes, 
amounting to $894,898.48, does not constitute a 
liability of the Corporate Purposes Fund. This 
amount is not included as a liability in the fiscal 
year 1946. 

The revised estimated balance sheet is as fol- 
lows:

MAYOR. 



Recommendation for Employment of 1,000 Additional 
Police Patrolmen. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
follov\ing communication : 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

January 16, 1946. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago : 

Gentlemen — There is transmitted herev^ith a let- 
ter from the Commissioner of Police which invites 
particular attention to the inadequacy of Chicago's 
police force, the alarming postwar upsurge in the 
number of crimes, and which voices an urgent ap- 
peal for additional policemen. I request that your 
honorable body give immediate consideration to 
the factual data submitted and I hereby lay before 
you a matter of such urgency as to require amend- 
ing the annual appropriation ordinance passed 
January 9, 1946, so as to make provision for in- 
creasing the personnel of the police department 
by the addition of the requested number of patrol- 
men. 

Chicago is facing a critical period in her history. 
The crisis is imminent due to a postwar crime wave 
which appears to be sweeping across the country 
and which seems likely to reach its height and 
intensity in a great city like Chicago. If we are 
to meet the crisis and be prepared to cope with 
the extraordinary conditions confronting us it 
seems to me to be imperative that our police force 
be promptly increased in number and that this 
should be done regardless of whatever improve- 
ments and betterments we may be required to fore- 
go or postpone during the current year. It is a 
matter of common knowledge that our city is and 
has been for a number of years inadequately po- 
liced and it goes without the saying that crime 
must be abated and law and order preserved, as 
these matters go to the very existence of the<fmuni- 
cipality and the welfare of its inhabitants. 

A great metropolis such as Chicago having ap- 
proxunately 4,000,000 population should have a 
police force of 10,000. The personnel of New York 
city's police force numbers upwards of 19,000. In 
my judgment we cannot with any degree of safety 
afford to approach the new year without an active 
force of at least 7,000. This means augmenting 
the present force by 1,000 additional men. 

In order to meet the situation and provide for 
these additional policemen it will be necessary that 
department heads suffer a reduction in their appro- 
priations and use at all times during the current 
year their utmost endeavors to effect departmental 
economies. I recognige, of course, that the reduc- 



tion in items will hamper departmental operations 
beyond the point which efficient executives would 
like to see them curtailed, and that only by the 
practice of the severest economy can we hope to 
carry forward throughout the year those necessary 
functions so indispensable to the welfare of our city. 
However, I know that all officials of our local gov- 
ernment must recognize how indispensable is the 
safety of the lives and property of our citizens, 
and that they realize, as I am forced to realize, the 
necessity that adequate security be furnished. 

I therefore urgently call upon the members of 
the City Council to face the exigency with which 
our city is confronted, with the characteristic pa- 
triotism and desire to subordinate matters of lesser 
importance and join with me in what in my con- 
sidered judgment I believe to be imperatively nec- 
essary at this time. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

The following is the letter transmitted with the 
Mayor's communication: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Police 

January 15, 1946. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, City Hall. 

Dear Sir — It is respectfully requested that 
authority be granted to the Commissioner of Police 
to employ immediately 1,000 additional patrolmen. 

Statistics prepared and available from cities 
throughout the United States, including Chicago, 
indicate a radical increase in crime and juvenile 
delinquency. It does not seem too radical to state 
that a postwar crime wave is sweeping the country 
and that an upsurge in the number of offenses of 
all descriptions is confronting the police depart- 
ment of the City of Chicago. Not only is crime 
and delinquency on the increase, but its ferocity is 
intensifying. Witness the recent fiendish murder 
of the 6 year old Suzanne Degnan and other baffling 
atrocities, accounts of which fill the public press. 

Records of this department show an increase in 
major crimes during the year 1945, as compared 
with the figures for the year 1944, as follows: 

Murder, 5.45% 
Manslaughter, 42.55% 
Rape, 17.05% 
Robbery, 1.11% 
Aggravated Assault, 3.64% 
Burglary, 15.58% 
Larceny, 6.90% 
Auto Thefts, 17.50% 

For a number of years Chicago's police depart- 
ment has been undermanned. Taking New York 
city as a comparison we have only approximately 
6,000 policemen, whereas New York City, with twice 



4928 



JOURNAI^CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 16, 1946 



Chicago's population, has upward of 19,000. Fig- 
ures show that New York City has available ap- 
proximately 54 policemen per square mile of terri- 
tory, whereas Chicago has only approximately 31 
per square mile. In other words, on the population 
basis, with twice our population, New York has 
available three times the manpower of our police 
department. 

The fact should not be lost sight of that the 
paramount duty of our police department is to pre- 
vent crime, and my experience has been that the 
most effective means of preventing offenses is by 
having patrolmen assigned to particular neighbor- 
hoods, rather than to depend mainly upon the use 
of squad cars. 

In the event the additional patrolmen are made 
available, suitable material could readily be ob- 
tained through the employment of returned vet- 
erans, who by reason of their training in the use 
of firearms and military discipline, would be pecu- 
liarly fitted for police department duties. 
Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John C. Prendergast, 

Commissioner of Police. 

Alderman Kovarik moved to suspend the rules tem- 
porarily, to dispense with committee consideration 
and permit immediate action by the City Council on 
the Mayor's communication. Seconded by Alderman 
Janousek. 

The motion prevailed. 



Amendment of Annual Appropriation Ordinance 
of City of Chicago for Year 1946. 

By unanimous consent Alderman Bowler thereupon 
presented a proposed ordinance to amend the Annual 
Appropriation Ordinance of the City of Chicago for 
the year 1946, to provide for the employment of 1,000 
additional police patrolmen. 

Alderman Bowler moved to suspend the rules tem- 
porarily, to dispense with committee consideration and 
permit immediate consideration of and action upon 



said proposed ordinance by the City Council. Sec- 
onded by Alderman Kovarik. 

Alderman Waller moved to amend the motion to 
suspend the rules, to include any proposed ordinances 
that might be presented for amendment of the annual 
appropriation ordinance for the year 1946. 

The motion to amend was lost. 

The question thereupon being put on the motion to 
suspend the rules, the motion prevailed. 

Alderman Bowler moved that said proposed ordi- 
nance do pass. Seconded by Alderman Bohling. 

The motion prevailed and said ordinance was passed

The City Clerk presented the following proclama- 
tions of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, which 
were ordered published and placed on file: 

Plea for Generous Response to Annual Appeal of Na- 
tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the Cook County Chapter of the Na- 
tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis is making 
its annual appeal, January 14 to 31, for funds to 
fight the dread disease of poliomyelitis in the Chi- 
cago Area; and 

Whereas, the Cook County Chapter spent $211,- 
613 in the care and treatment of new and previous 
cases of infantile paralysis in 1945 and must always 
have funds in readiness to continue their work in 
1946; and 

Whereas, the Cook County Chapter assures con- 
tinued care and treatment of victims of this crip- 
pling disease in this area and receives no aid from 
community funds, government, trust or other in- 
come; and 

Whereas, it is vital that the comprehensive re- 
search for a prevention and cure of this virulent 
disease, being conducted by the National Founda- 
tion for Infantile Paralysis, be continued; and 

Whereas, the works of both the Foundation for 
Infantile Paralysis and its chapter are outstanding 
in the history of this nation; and 

Whereas, the continuance of the Cook County 
Chapter is a community necessity ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do appeal to citizens of Chi- 



cago to contribute to the limit of their financial 
ability to this most worthy cause. 

Dated this 11th day of January, A. D. 1946. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



Designation of "Chicago's Own Mercy Clothing 
Collection Day". 

Office op the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, this winter, more than 300,000,000 war 
victims throughout the world are paying the cost 
of Fascist militarism in cold, hunger, disease and 
poverty in war-devastated countries; and 

Whereas, due to a lack of clothing their hard- 
ships are intensified and thousands are dying from 
exposure; and 

Whereas, an appeal has been issued by our Chief 
Executive, President Truman, calling upon all 
Americans to share our comparative plenty with 
the less fortunate of the world; and 

Whereas, the charitable and patriotic citizens of 
this great city have never failed to respond to such 
an appeal; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, in view of these facts and with 
special reference to the increased suffering, and the 
infinitely greater need that now exists, do hereby 
proclaim Saturday, January 26, as Chicago's Own 
Mercy Clothing Collection Day, and ask that upon 
that day at 8:00 A. M., each Chicago citizen place 
before his door a bundle of clothing, shoes or bed- 
ding, as his part of Chicago's contribution to this 
critical need, and as an expression of our gratitude 
to the Almighty for the Victory won at so great 
a cost. 



Dated this 12th day of January, A. D. 
(Signed) Edward J. 



1946. 
Kelly, 
Mayor. 



Designation of "Brotherhood Week in Chicago". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, our victory in the war just ended was 
a triumph over undemocratic doctrines that would 
set race against race, religion against religion, and 
destroy any possibility of unity among men; and 

Whereas, this victory was achieved by peoples of 
all groups, fighting and working together in cour- 
age and devotion for the common goal; and 

Whereas, Wars and all inhumanity among men 
would be impossible if the world were guided by a 
spirit of true brotherhood; and 

Whereas, to solve the problems of our modern 
world and to meet the challenge of new and un- 
heard of possibilities both for destruction and con- 
struction it is more than ever imperative that the 
lessons of brotherhood be applied; and 

Whereas, the National Conference of Christians 
and Jews, has established the week of February 
17-24, 1946 as Brotherhood Week, and the Presi- 
dent of the United States has issued a proclama- 



January 16, 1946 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



4933 



tion calling upon people to observe this period suit- 
ably; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, as Mayor of 
the City of Chicago do hereby proclaim the week 
of February 17 to 24 as Brotherhood Week in Chi- 
cago, and do urge all citizens to recognize that all 
the wealth and strength of our country — all our 
opportunities for greatness — all our chances of liv- 
ing at peace with the rest of the world depends 
upon our sincerity in seeking true brotherhood 
among men, and I hereby urge all organizations 
and individuals to cooperate with the Chicago 
Round Table of the National Conference of Chias- 
tians and Jews in the programs they have planned 
for Brotherhood Week. 

Dated this 14th day of January, A. D. 1946.

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

December 20, 1945. 

To the Honorable Chairman and Members of the 
Committee on Finance of the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Please be advised that in the con- 
demnation proceedings entitled City of Chicago v. 
Irene H. Callender, et al., Cirijuit Court No. 44-C- : 
10620, authorized by the City Council, an agree- 
ment has been made, subject to your approval and 
the approval of the State, with the owner of Par- 
cel 233 involved in said suit for the acquiring of 
said parcel. The proposed agreement is as follows: 
Parcel 233 is owned by G. J. Nikolas & Com- 
pany, an Illinois corporation, known as 1227-1229 
W. Van Buren Street, having a frontage of 125.20 
feet on W. Van Buren Street and a depth of 120.22 
feet and contains approximately 15,051.54 square 
feet. 

This land is improved with a three-story and 
basement brick building erected in two sections. 
The front building was built in about 1904 and 
remodeled in 1924 when the rear building, which 
is of reinforced concrete, was built. The building 
has two elevators, one low pressure and one high 
pressure boiler, good plumbing and is in excellent 
condition throughout. It is used intensively for the 
business of the owner which is the manufacture ot 
lacquer, varnishes, etc. The building is well 
adapted for the owner's business and is a special- 
purpose building. The buildings occupy the east- 
erly 50 feet of the property and the remainder is 
vacant except for a small one-story frame garage 
building.- 

The structural engineer for the City estimates 
that the present value of the equipment which 
cannot be moved without destruction is $11,352.00. 
Because they desire to move into a new building 
which will be erected for their special purpose, 
the owner makes it one of the conditions of settle- 
ment that they be permitted to remain in posses- 
sion of the building being condemned until August 
31, 1946 at a rental of 20c per square foot, the 
tenant to operate the building at its expense whUe 
in its possession. 

Legal Description 
Lots Eleven (11), Twelve (12), Thirteen (13), 
Fourteen (14) and Fifteen (15) in S. P-J}^;

Seventeen (17), Township Thirty-nine (39) 
North, Range Fourteen (14) East of the Third 
Principal Meridian, in the City of Chicago, Coun- 
ty of Cook and State of Illinois. 

The assessed value (1943) is $30,454.00, which 
does not in the opinion of our appraisers reflect 
the true value of the building. 

The owner has agreed to accept as full payment 
for the taking of said land and buildings the sum 
of $65,000.00 provided they can retain the owner- 
ship of and remove at their expense the following 
articles : 

All personal property in the premises;

To the Honorable Chairman and Members of the 
, Committee on Finance of the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Please be advised that in the mat- 
ter of City of Chicago v. Irene H. Callender, et al., 
Circuit Court No. 44-C-10620, Parcel 223 came on 
for trial; trial was contested and verdict was ren- 
dered in the amount of $20,000, whereupon motion 
was made for a new trial, argued and motion for 
new trial was allowed. Thereupon petition for ap- 
peal was filed by the defendant in the Supreme 
Court, which appeal was denied, and the cause 
came on again to be heard. There was a confer- 
ence held with Judge Benjamin P. Epstein and in 
said conference the Judge urged that a settlement 
be made, stating that he had not granted a new 
trial because he thought the award was out of line 
but did it because of errors in the trial on the part 
of the defendant; that at the trial the owner's 
testimony was to the effect that the land and build- 
ing was worth $37,000 and he had an income of 
$2,400 a year out of the property and that the ten- 
ant operated the building at his expense. The 
owner has agreed to accept as full payment for the 
taking of said land and building the sum of $19,000, 
and said settlement is herewith submitted for your 
approval. 

The assessed valuation of this property for 1943 
is $9,620.00 which, in the opinion of our appraisers, 
does not reflect the true value of the property.

Proclamation 
Whereas, the City of Chicago has well met its 
responsibilities to members of the armed forces, 
youth and workers during war in safeguarding 
their health and welfare; and 

Whereas, the same responsibility must be ac- 
knowledged and fulfilled in peacetime as well to 
meet American standards of living; and 

Whereas, venereal disease presents a serious . . . 
and growing . . . public health problem in peace as 
in war, menacing our youth and taking its toll in 
lives, disability, misery, and misfortune; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Junior Association of 
Commerce has joined forces with the Chicago 
Health Department in waging, throughout the 
month of February, 1946, a public information 
campaign to eradicate venereal disease and thus 
provide better health and cleaner community liv- 
ing; and 

Whereas, civilian and military, medical, legal and 
social organizations of this nation, state and com- 
munity are cooperating in this worthy effort; 

Now, therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the month of 
February, 1946, as Anti-VD Month and do hereby 
urge all people to give wholehearted attention and 
support to the campaign against venereal disease

Submission of Proposed Authorization for Execution 

of Cooperation Contract with Chicago Housing 

Authority for Low-Kent Housing Projects 

Nos. m. 2-7, 2-8 and 2-9. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, which was, together with the proposed ordi- 
nance submitted therewith, referred to the Committee 
on Housing: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

January 30, 1946. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago : 

Gentlemen — We transmit herewith a draft of 
proposed ordinance authorizing the City of Chicago 



January 30, 1946 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



4979 



to execute a Cooperation Contract with the Chicago 
Housing Authority for certain low-rent housing 
projects. This Contract is intended to cover the 
project (2-9) included in ordinance passed October 
25, 1945 (Coun. J. p. 4255), and projects 2-7 
and 2-8. 

In response to our request for information con- 
cerning changes in the present form of Contract 
from those heretofore executed, we received from 
the Executive Secretary of the Chicago Housing 
Authority the following: 

"In accordance with your request I am sum- 
marizing the major points in connection with the 
new draft of a Cooperation Agreement between 
the City of Chicago and the Chicago Housing 
Authority. 

1. The new draft provides that the service 
charge payments shall commence as soon as 
the project is occupied in whole or in part. This 
is in accordance with Section 29 of the Hous- 
ing Authorities Act and corrects the Agree- 
ment authorized October 25th in this regard. 
We have, of course, always commenced these 
payments as soon as the project was partially 
occupied. 

2. Paragraph 3 of the new draft also specifies 
the funds out of which the service charge is 
to be paid in order to avoid impairment of 
any obligations to bond holders. 

3. The last paragraph of Section 3 is intended to 
make sure that the local annual contribution 
(i.e. the value of the tax exemption) will be 
sufficient to meet the requirements of federal 
law upon which the Federal Public Housing 
Authority's financial aid is conditioned. 

4. The requirement of equivalent elimination of 
substandard dwelling units is made somewhat 
more specific in this draft (Section 4). 

5. The new draft mentions several additional 
services which are actually supplied by the 
City to the dwellers in public housing proj- 
ects (See Sections 5 and 6). 

6. The new draft eliminates the proviso at the 
end of the October 26th document which 
states that the Agreement may be abrogated 
if an annual contribution contract is not made 
within six months. The execution of this 
particular contract within the time specified 
may be prevented by certain requirements. 

As you know, it will greatly facilitate our ob- 
taining of federal assistance for the above men- 
tioned projects if a Cooperation Agreement in 
substantially this form can be approved by the 
Council at its meeting next week. Certain steps 
in connection with these projects are ready to 
be taken as soon as an Agreement satisfactory to 
the Federal Public Housing Authority is entered 
into. Consequently, I hope you will find it pos- 
sible to examine this draft in time for submis- 
sion to the next Council meeting. If you feel that 
any changes should be made, please telephone us, 
as we are anxious to work out a thoroughly ac- 
ceptable form of Agreement." 

If this ordinance is passed and the Contract exe- 
cuted, we would suggest the ordinance of October 
25, 1945 be repealed. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Al F. Gorman, 
Assistant Corporation Counsel. 
Approved : 

(Signed) Barnet Hodes, 

Corporation Counsel. 



Transmittal of Policy Becommendations of Chicago

Corporation Counsel transmitting a letter from Mrs. 
Lorraine K. Cohn transmitting policy recommenda- 
tions of the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee, which 
was 

Referred to the Committee on Judiciary and State 
Legislation. 



In Matter of Petition for Annexation to City of 

Chicago of Certain Contiguous Territory 

Along W. 87th St. 

The City Clerk presented a communication from 
the Corporation Counsel concerning a petition filed 
in the County Court on January 15, 1946, for annexa- 
tion to the City of Chicago of certain contiguous ter- 
ritory lying along W. 87th Street between S. Pulaski

Submission of Report as to Steps Taken to Compel 
Operation of 3,000 Taxicabs. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, which was, together with the copies of cor- 
respondence transmitted therewith, referred to the 
Committee on Local Transportation: 

City of Chicago 
Public Vebicle License Commission 

January 22, 1946. 

To the Honorable, the City County of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — On December 28, 1945, your hon- 
orable body passed the following resolution : 

Whereas, the people of the City of Chicago are 
entitled to the very best possible transportation 
facilities from all persons and corporations au- 
thorized to furnish transportation of passengers 
for hire on the streets of the city; and 

Whereas, the supply of private transportation 
facilities has diminished and the demand for all 
forms of local transportation facilities has in- 
creased on account of the war and reconversion 
from war time to peace time economy and all 
public service facilities devoted to the transpor- 
tation of passengers in the City of Chicago should 
be furnished to the utmost capacity; therefore,

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 30, 1946 



Be it resolved, that all of the taxicab licensees 
be required to put into service at once all taxicabs 
licensed pursuant to ordinance and the PubUc 
Vehicle License Commissioner hereby is author- 
ized and directed to enforce the provisions of the 
taxicab ordinance to compel full operation of 
3,000 taxicabs in the City of Chicago and unless 
the licensees provide said 3,000 taxicabs on or 
before January 15, 1946 the Public Vehicle Li- 
cense Commissioner is authorized and directed 
to take all steps that are necessary for the Hcens- 
ing of additional taxicabs in the City of Chicago. 
A copy of the above resolution was mailed to all 
licensees on January 2, 1946. Upon survey of facts 
and the records of the two large companies, the fol- 
lowing conditions were found to exist: 
Yellow Cab Company— It was found a total of 234 
taxicabs had not operated within a reasonable 
length of time. Therefore, there was mailed, 
on this date, a notice (copy of which is at- 
tached hereto) advising them that if these 
taxicabs were not operating within five days 
of the date of this notice, their licenses cover- 
ing these taxicabs would be cancelled and is- 
sued to others, as provided in the resolution 
passed by the City Council on December 28, 
1945. 
Checker Taxi Company— It was found a total of 87 
taxicabs had not operated within a reasonable 
length of time. Therefore, there was mailed on 
this date, a notice (copy of which is attached 
hereto) advising them that if these taxicabs 
were not operating within five days of the date 
of this notice, their Ucenses covering these 
taxicabs would be cancelled and issued to 
others, as provided in the resolution passed by 
the City Council on December 28, 1945. 
During the course of the survey, Mr. Bieze, sec- 
retary-treasurer of the Yellow Cab Company, upon 
being asked, "when do you expect these cars that 
are laid up to be in operation," immediately con- 
tacted the shop superintendent, who gave the fol- 
lowing explanation: 

"They had orders out for transmissions, dif- 
ferentials, ring-pistons, doors and wind-shields; 
but due to strikes it was impossible to procure 
all of these items. There are in excess of 3,000 
parts to an automobile, with only 20% of the 
parts available; but they are doing everything 
in their power to procure the items. 

There were 64 differentials short and eight 
were expressed on January 16, 1946 and 50 more 
were to be shipped by motor freight from De- 
troit on January 18, 1946. 

Main bearing inserts are short and we are 
unable to procure new ones. We have sent some 
to Kraus and Ball to re-babbitt and expect them 
in 15 to 30 days. 

Doors — We have the skeleton doors but short 
of the upper panel. The manufacturers are out 
of production on this and the dies were scrapped. 
We have to make the upper panel by hand. 

Glass and wind-shields — Today we located a 
place that has enough glass for 20 wind-shields. 
They are cutting. There are no wind-shields be- 
ing manufactured, and it is only through sheer 
luck that we can find them. We are being 
charged for the 20 wind-shields ; $12.00 each and 
the regular price is $3.00; but we are paying in 
order to get them. 

Bumper Bracket— We ordered these from the 
Maremont Manufacturing Company on South 



Ashland Avenue, November 15, 1945 and have 
had no delivery yet, but expect them next week. 
The reason that they haven't been able to man- 
ufacture is that they are completing war con- 
tracts, but now they are starting to make them. 

Springs — No shortage of springs because Mare- 
mont Manufacturing Company has been taking 
care of them. 

Body — There has been no new bodies made be- 
cause the die has been scrapped for war produc- 
tion work. 

Radiator Grill — No manufacture of these be- 
cause the die has been scrapped and there are 
none on hand. 

Front-wheel Spindles — No production and the 
company has to make a few by hand. They 
haven't been able to get enough labor or material 
due to strikes and no machine shop will under- 
take to do this work today. 

The ordinary life of the cabs that were built is 
three years and the cabs they have today are five 
to six years old, which is double the life of an 
ordinary cab. 

Due to many strikes in the metal industry a 
great many small parts are not available. 

The company has taken all steps possible to 
purchase new equipment as evidenced by photo- 
static copies of letters dated June 7, 1945 to the 
Honorable James R. Quinn, Chairman of the 
Committee on Local Transportation; June 12, 
1945, to the Honorable James R. Quinn; August 
15, 1945 to the Checker Cab Manufacturing 
Corporation, (ordering cabs) and the letter of 
August 20, 1945 acknowledging receipt and ac- 
ceptance of the order; and the letter of August 
22, 1945 to Mr. James F. Riley, Acting Director 
of the O.P.A. The photostatic copies of the above 
letters are attached hereto." 

Upon questioning the Checker Taxi Company as 
to when they expect their cars that are laid up to 
be in operation, the answers were approximately 
the same as those of the Yellow Cab Company. 

All working papers used in arriving at the fore- 
going are in my possession and any further details 
you may wish can be ascertained from them. 

An identical copy of this letter has been mailed 
to Alderman James Young, Chairman of the Local 
Transportation Committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Edw. J. Gorman, 

Commissioner.

Feinberg in the Circuit Court of Cook County to 
restrain the issuance of 250 permits for the operation 
of taxicabs as authorized by the City Council on Janu-

the matter for the time being on the understanding 
that in the meantime nothing would be done by either 
party to the proceeding to disturb the status quo. 

The question thereupon being put, the motion was 
lost by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — ^Aldermen Cohen, Bohling, Fischman, Brandt,
